RESOLUTION TO CONDEMNS THE BLATANT INTERFERENCE IN PAKISTAN'S INTERNAL AFFAIRS EVIDENCED BY US CONGRESSIONAL FOREIGN RELATIONS SUB-COMMITTEE HEARING ON BALOCHISTAN ON 8TH FEBRUARY, 2012
"This House strongly condemns the blatant interference in Pakistan's internal affairs evidenced by US Congressional Foreign Relations Sub-Committee hearing on Balochistan on 8th February, 2012. This House notes with great concern that at a time when Pakistan - US relations are already under severe stress, the holding of such a hearing by the US Congress cannot but jeopardize the healing process and further inflame public opinion against the US by adding to the prevailing sense of mistrust and suspicion regarding US intentions towards Pakistan.
This House, therefore, calls upon the Government of Pakistan to convey to the United States Administration, in no uncertain terms, that:-
a) such hearings relating to the internal affairs of Pakistan are totally unacceptable and the US Administration needs to play a more proactive role to discourage such ill-informed and motivated debate on sensitive issues relating to a sovereign country;
b) to re-build mutual trust and confidence, the US Administration should respect and comply with the will of the people of the Pakistan as expressed through vanous parliamentary resolutions and discontinue' drone attacks forthwith."
